About Dodge Nitro

The 2011 Dodge Nitro has a split personality. On one side, the Dodge Nitro is like any mid-size crossover offering seating for five, available all-wheel drive and an affordable sticker price. Then there is the Nitro's more extreme side, which displays bold and boxy styling, vivid color choices and massive 20-inch wheels. Placed side-by-side with a Honda CR-V or Chevrolet Equinox, the untrained observers would probably be hard pressed to place the Nitro in the same league. And, although the Nitro threatens to cannibalize sales from family members Jeep Liberty and Dodge Journey, Dodge isn't worried, saying the Nitro has its own unique niche defined by its artful blend of size, styling and features.

"we bought a 2007 nitro r/t new and have had no complaints. Yes, we did have an issue where is stalled twice, took it in and was told the computer program had to be updated, other than that we have had no issues what so ever. We went with the r/t that has the v6 and a different transmission ( we did some homework before bought )and the reviews were good and our review is good too plus it is just " hot looking, head turner" with the 20's and inferno red, oh yea. The highway mileage is true to the sticker of 22/23 highway. Bottom line: We love it."

"I bought this 2007 Nitro r/x brand new.. I love the way the car looks on the outside.. but on the inside, it is made very cheaply ..the dodge emblem on my steering wheel has fallen off, the plastic molding has fallen off where you move the seats, the sunroof leaks when it rains, and my car has actually died on me while driving it on the freeway.. recently had to take it to get fixed because of the alternator.. oh and the air conditioner doesnt work unless you hold the knob to turn it ..i would not buy another dodge product"

"I love everything about the vehicle. It looks great, and people are always looking at it. I got the R/T with the 260 HP engine, and it has more than enough power. I had no problem towing my boat with it over 1100 miles from Kentucky to Boston. I recommend this vehicle next time you are out looking."
